A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come?

I'm gonna rate this one before the final episode airs next week: This show is really bad and I have no idea why I stuck with it...
The first episode was allright and there seemed to be plenty of people who played the games so it had to have something good. It only got worse. The first apparent flaw is the art and animation: Apart from Monobear the designs are ugly and it looks cheap. It also takes many of the game elements straight into the anime (and these look even worse). The characters are flat since this is basicly a "let's play" with scenes cut out, there are 15 students afterall. There are also no attempts of presenting realistic behaviour among the students. Doesn't matter if they're psychopaths or not they just get along. The classroom trials where they have to deceide on a curlpit after a murder are basicly a twist party. Since you're not playing you get the clues presented which often feels like an asspull (and there are many of those). This weeks episode aswell as the previous one were not even trying anymore. They expect you to accept even more bullshit than the recent Sword Art Online. It's not worth anyones time. If you're remotely interested either check out a playthrough on YouTube or play one of the games but I can't tell you if they're any better.
